A woman in Ohio is accused of murder after she allegedly cut a man who then fled and was shot dead by a homeowner after escaping the suspect by entering a nearby residence, authorities said.
Ebony Stenson, 39, got into a dispute with 48-year-old Henri Jennings while in a vehicle he was driving in Cincinnati on Sept. 19, WXIX reported.
During the argument, Stenson allegedly used a box cutter to slice Jennings’ neck, and he crashed, according to an affidavit obtained by the station.
“Henri fled from the vehicle at which time Ebondy used [it] and attempted to run over Henri,” the affidavit states.
The alleged victim ran up the steps of a nearby residence in an attempt to escape, police said.
“Henri pushed his way through the front door engaging in a physical altercation with the homeowner at which time he was shot three times,” the affidavit states. “Henri crawled out of the house and died on the front step.”
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that the homeowner, who was watching television, “feared for his life and shot the victim more than one time” but would not face charges in connection with the incident.
Stenson faces a murder charge and was being held in lieu of $750,000 bond, according to WXIX.
